To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Invocations and Blessings

Reviewing John O’Donohue’s collection of poetic prayers

“Like the joy of the sea coming home to shore,

May the relief of laughter rinse through your soul.”

For Equilibrium, a Blessing, by John O’Donohue

I recently finished my morning readings of John O’Donohue’s Book of Blessings and it was truly a blessing for my soul. It’s a book ideal for those times in your life that mark an occasion – a birth, a death, a new home, a new job, retirement, but I read it daily and found it to be an ideal start to my day. He thought of everything — my husband has an old friend whose son was arrested last year for a serious crime, and it’s hard in those situations to even know what to say or do. This book has a blessing for the parents of a child who is imprisoned, and it made me weep it was so touching and heart-felt. It is an ideal book to have handy when you need to give or receive a blessing of any kind. Read it, and your heart will thank you.

May your day be overflowing with blessings…

Each day the world blesses us with its beauty. Soak it in.
